1011: The Quest (Part 2) 2007 April 13

(First watched 2007-04-13)  Damn, what a long mid-season break.  Stargate continues its trend of finding major important ancient artifacts, and quickly losing them.  In this case they literally lose an Ancient!  Merlin, of all people, only gets to hang around for half an episode!?  Fun to see some of his memories in Daniel Jackson before they became too overwhelming, though.  I wonder how much Daniel actually recalls.  It's understandably knowledge he'd want to hide from the Ori, but it would also be pretty funny if he ended up to not only have forgotten his own memories (of being ascended), but of Merlin's too.

Daryl the dragon was a hoot; especially the unsuccessful attempt to off it with C-4.

1012: Line in the Sand 2007 April 20

(First watched 2007-04-20)  It was nearly a throwaway line, but her password being "fishing".  Awwwww.

1013: 2007 April 27

(First watched 2007-04-27)  OK, that was great.  We've had a few alternate universe stories before, but this was different.  Usually they've been a chance to see the regular cast acting differently, but in this case it was more about them mostly not even being around, and the world being a very different place for a relatively recent difference in history.  Fun to see Lorne as the alternate SG-1 leader and play the Jack/Cam style.  Also Hammond!  And McKay, of course.  But the accidental transfer of our Carter killing the alternate Carter in a violent explosion?  OUCH.

At first I thought it seemed like the first alternate universe story in season 1, where that Earth was being conquered by the Goa'uld and all Daniel could do was use the knowledge to help his own Earth.  In this instance it was reversed, however, with Sam bringing the knowledge of a neat trick to save that world.  Putting the planet out of phase... nice.

1014: 2007 May 4

(First watched 2007-05-04)  Wow.  The episode was very tense, but won't be the most rewatchable since the mystery of which side Daniel is playing is already known.  Daniel as a prior?  When I realized that's where they were going with the beginning of the episode, I was very much "Oh no oh no oh no oh no oh no."

Merlin is gone... again.

Jack back again, and in another role greater than... well, everything from season 9.

So are the Ori gone, but their followers and priors remain?  If they'd known this would be the last season that would seem likely, but I doubt they'd cut off the opportunity for further big showdowns with them in future seasons since they didn't.

1015: 2007 May 11

(First watched 2007-05-11)  Earth has generally been way too out of the loop, so it's a neat idea that space bounty hunters are hunting down SG-1 when they're in the normal world.  The solution to Daniel's situation was way too deus ex machina, though.  Hit by a bus after she caught him?  Come oooon.

1016: Bad Guys 2007 May 18

(First watched 2007-05-18)  Definitely filler.  A bit fun to see Daniel trying to play the role of a rebel hostage-taker, though.

1017: Talion 2007 June 1

(First watched 2007-06-01)  Meh.  Not only was the secondary plot about whether (or how) Arkad was planning on double-crossing them old hat, but having Teal'c torture and explode a man trying to get information made me lose respect for him.  There was also the fact that part of Teal'c's animosity toward Arkad was that he suspected Arkad had a part in the death of his mother... then it turns out Teal'c was responsible for the death of much of Arkad's family, too, so they were both playing the revenge angle.

To look for a bright spot, Mitchell vs Teal'c fight was interesting.  It was no Kirk vs Spock and Teal'c was obviously in control, but that's not something they would've done with O'Neill still in charge.

Near the beginning, the way they were talking about Bra'tac had me worried.  After all the death-cheating he's done throughout the years, it would've been so wrong for him to go in this episode.  He did look funny in hospital clothes, though.  On another guest note, Dr. Lam was back; they've pretty much been ignoring her existence for more than a season, so I thought she was gone.

1018: Family Ties 2007 June 8

(First watched 2007-06-08)  Fred Willard on SG-1?  What an odd combination.  Not much of a regular episode at all, but Fred as Jacek was quite fun... if just like most other roles I've seen Fred do.

Teal'c unknowingly ending up at the Vagina Monologues... great scene, great facial acting on Christopher Judge's part.

1020: Unending 2007 June 22

(First watched 2007-06-22)  Wow.  As a rushed ending I was expecting a cliffhanger leading into Ark of Truth, but instead they gave  a great character episode with a good sci-fi premise.  The Pegasus Project was fun for its Atlantis crossover and 200 was a huge laugh, but as its own episode I think this is my favorite of the season.

I guess this does share some similarities to Season 8's Moebius in that a sort-of-alternate SG-1 is lost to set time right and leave a valuable asset gained: then the ZPM, now the entire knowledge of the Asgard race.  Poor Asgards... nice callback to a much earlier episode with their acknowledgment that humanity is the fifth race.

For a reset button episode, though, they sure left a lot more changed than normal.  Teal'c retains all of the memory and aging; he's older than Bra'tac now!  I wonder what it was like for him to return to his "normal" life.  For everyone else it was like nothing, but for him the time spent on the Odyssey was several times as long as the entire time he's spent as a member of SG-1.  In a way that's weird considering cast changes, he now probably knows Mitchell and Vala even better than he knows O'Neill.  How strange it must be for him to be able to be reunited with his friends and family who he hasn't seen in decades, but for them nothing has happened.  I wonder if they'll keep his white patch for the movies, or if they'll make him a bit vain and cover it up?
